Iran's Ahmadinejad attacks Israel again at UN food summit

ROME (AFP) — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Europeans suffered the "biggest damage" from the "artificial regime" of Israel, on his arrival in Rome for a UN food agency summit, a report said Tuesday.

"Europeans have suffered the biggest damage from the Zionists and today the weight of this artificial regime, both political and economic, is on Europe's shoulders," he said, according to Telenews agency.

Italian activists, leftist politicians and Jewish groups have already protested against his presence at the summit, saying it was a disgrace to host someone who has repeatedly predicted Israel's disappearance.

But Ahmadinejad denied that his provocative statements caused problems, adding that "people really like my declarations," according to the report.

The Iranian president predicted on Monday that Muslims would uproot "satanic powers" and repeated his controversial belief that Israel will soon disappear.

He said he would be holding talks with "world leaders" on the sidelines of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) summit on food security, but did not specify which ones.

Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi will not meet with visiting Ahmadinejad this week--
The Italians are choosing "The American Stance" on dealing with Iran.
...That is the "current" American stance of not meeting with Iran.
YNET News reported:

Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini rejected the possibility of a meeting between Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is scheduled to attend a UN conference in Rome.

There is an old Persian saying, "kofr momkenast mandegar bashad, vali zolm mandegar neest" which roughly translates into, "unbelief may linger, but oppression will not endure." So Mr. Ahmadinejad could be right...but this reality does not necessarily have to limit itself to one country or entity or individual.

Something wrong with the translation, again?

IRI apologists, we're desperately waiting for your comments!


The report

by Parham on

Whoever wrote that report didn't proofread well, or doesn't know Ahmadinejad is president of Iran! I'm of course referring to the last paragraph.

Also, Jimzbund jan, AFP stands for "Agence France Presse", not "Associated Free Press".


Indeed, The Demise have already begun

by Mehdi Mazloom (not verified) on

Well, the demise could be for two entities.

1. A democratic and modern state of Israel
2. An illegitimate and fundamentalist regime or Iran, which very few people, including its own constituency want them to remain in power.

Now which one of them is easier and desirable to remove.

You already know the answer to these choices.
